St. Malachi 2008
I was undecided about running this one, as I need to get more miles in before Boston which is only 5 weeks away, and this is only a five miler. Then Mark e-mailed and invited anyone who wanted to join him, to run the race route before the race, then run the race, then tag another 7 or so after, totaling 17 or 18 miles. I needed another race, plus this would add the extra miles, so it was an easy decision. It turned out to be the right decision. It was a good day, and I managed a PR of 32:19, which is a 6:28 pace.
Thanks Elizabeth, for cheering us on and taking photos like this one. Great vantage point with the flats in the background.
A group of us (Kam, Steve, Dave, and Marc, and Mark) went to Mark's office after, got a quick tour of AdCom (quite impressive), and got some breakfast/lunch at Shay's on 40th and St. Clair. While we ate, Kam and Mark explained to the rest of us why we are so slow. ;-)
